Screamin' for My Supper

Just a Little Hole

To remember or to forget it
could you ever laugh out loud while you cry
It will own you & you can't let it

While it holds you you can't even try
You're so unsatisfied
Your so damn petrified
You ain't got nothin'
no you ain't got nothin' to prove

just a little heartache
just a little hole
just an itchy finger
& nobody knows
just a little heartache

Somethin' for the soul
Fingers on the trigger
& nobody knows
what she knows

Got a secret & how you dread it
I should have known
by the lonely look in your eye

Made a promise & never kept it
you didn't even tell me good-bye
You're so unsatisfied
You've no more tears to cry
You ain't got nothin'
no you ain't got nothin' to prove

just a little heartache
just a little hole
just an itchy finger
& nobody knows
just a little heartache
Somethin' for the soul
Fingers on the trigger
and nobody knows
what she knows

In December I got your letter
and by the springtime
they let me know you were gone

If I only loved you better
I'd see you smile again
but what's done is done

just a little heartache
just a little hole
just an itchy finger
and nobody knows
just a little heartache
Somethin' for the soul
Fingers on the trigger
and nobody knows
Just a little heartache
Just an itcy finger
and nobody knows
Just a little heartache
Just a little hole
Just a little hole

Delicious Surprise

If I won me the lottery
I'd dance naked in the street
With a top hat full of money
and you'd wanna get to know me
if I won me the lottery

and if I was a movie star
I'd sip honey from a pickle jar
in the back of my limousine
and they'd call me an icon
and I'd be lookin' back at you
from the cover of the People magazine

I guess it's all for the takin'
I guess it's all yours and mine
my sister says I got to see it and believe it
and I believe I believe it


But I'm just an outsider
livin' in a trailer with my black & white TV set
If only I was President
you know I'd paint the White House pink
and never have to pay the rent
if only I was President

I guess it's all there for the takin'
I think it's all yours & mine
My preacher says I got to see it to believe it
and l believe
Won't sleep till I've had enough
I believe won't sip my wine from no paper cup
I believe won't sleep till I've had enough, till I've had enough

Delicious Surprise
And I do believe
No fear in my eyes
Now I can see

Heaven's inside inside inside
I knew it all the time
Got me somethin to believe in
but all I really want now is
a handful of salvation

and l believe
Won't sleep till I've had enough
I believe won't sip my wine from no paper cup
I believe won't sleep till I've had enough, till I've had enough
and l believe
Won't sleep till I've had enough
I believe won't sip my wine from no paper cup
I believe won't sleep till I've had enough, till I've had enough, till I've had enough
till I've had enough

L.A. Song

She hangs around the boulevard
She's a local girl with local scars
She got home late, she got home late
She drank so hard the bottle ached
and she tried and she tried and she tried and she tried
but nothin's clear in a bar full a flies
So she takes and she takes and she takes and she takes
She understands when she gives it away
She says

Man I gotta get outta this town
Man I gotta get outta this pain
Man I gotta get outta this town
Outta this town & out of L.A.

She's gotta gun
She got a gun she calls the lucky one
She left a note right by the phone
Don't leave a message 'cause this ain't no home
and she cried and she cried and she cried and she cried
She cried so long her tears ran dry
Then she laughed and she laughed and she laughed and she laughed
'Cause she knew she was never comin' back
She said

Man I'm gonna get outta this town
Man I'm gonna get outta this pain
Man I'm gonna get outta this town
Outta this town & out of L.A.
It's all she loves It's all she hates It's all too much for her
to take she can't be sure just where it ends or where
the good life begins
So she took a train she took a train
to a little old town without a name

She met a man he took her in
but fed her all the same bullshit again
'Cause he lied and he lied and he lied and he lied
he lied like a salesman sellin' flies
So she screamed and she screamed and she screamed and she screamed
it's a different place
but the same old thang
It's all I love It's all I hate It's all too much for me to take
I can't be sure where it begins or if the good life lies within
So she said

Man I gotta get out of this town
Yeah now I gotta get back on that train
Man I gotta get out of this town
I'm outta my pain
So I'm goin' back to L.A.
back to L.A.
back to L.A.
I'm going back to L.A.
I'm goin back to L.A.

Is That Too Much to Ask

Wish me luck
Give me somethin'
Help me out
And I'll go there...
Wish me luck
Give me somethin'
Help me out
And I'll go there...
All I want is a brand new truck
One eyed Jacks & beginner's luck
The doctor's script for the perfect drug
Get it all while I can
But I got no money and I got no man
I drive around in a beat up van
I ride on coffee & Percodan
Get it all while I can
Get it all while I can
Is that too much to ask
Is that too much to ask
Is that too much to ask
Is that too much to ask
So people tell me to clean up my mess
Like I was sweet sixteen in a dirty dress
But I'm wiser now so I must confess
That I get it all while I can, get all while I can now
Is that too much to ask
Is that too much to ask
Somebody tell me
Is that too much to ask
Just make it real and make it last
Someday maybe I'll understand
this crazy old life is in my hands
Someday maybe I'll figure it out
Somebody help me
Anybody tell me
Wish me luck
Give me somethin'
Help me out
And I'll go there
Wish me luck
Give me somethin'
Just make it real & make it last
Is that too much to ask
Is that too much to ask
Is that too much to ask
Is that too much to ask
Is that too much to ask
Is that too much to ask
Somebody tell me
Is that too much to ask
Just make it real and make it last

By Her

She got a poet's spirit
she bums among the clouds
she never stops believing
she only dreams out loud
there's a jackpot in the dresser
she's smiling in the glass
and if you need to kiss her
don't forget your stash
'cause she gives it away
and you're fascinated by her
and she does it again
with simple and brilliant desire
and she gives it away
and you're fascinated by ...
by her
she wears a million colors
there's rainbows on her soles
she got a sign above her
that says I'm never growin' old
you're askin' her to dance
now she spins a solid white light
she gonna make love to you today
today and every night
and she gives it away
and you're fascinated by her
then she does it again
with simple and brilliant desire
and she gives it away
and you're fascinated by
by her by her
she may be waiting
'round the comer of your mind
but still you know
she's there you can feel her inside
so don't forget about the reasons
that brought you here
'cause she's a miracle.
and she gives it away
and you're fascinated by her
then she does it again
with simple and brilliant desire
and she gives it away
and you're fascinated by
by
and she gives it away
and you're fascinated by
by her, by her, by her, by her

Get Your Shit Together

Hello again my friend
it's been sometime,
I try and read you
in your shifting eyes
your hands are trembling
as I hold 'em in mine
how ya livin'
You were the talker
and I was the clown
we grew up wonderin'
how we would get out
but you're still talkin' you're talkin'
You got places to go
you got people to know
you got plans
to get your shit together
Did you take it too far
did you forget who you are
did you stash your soul
into the closet forever forever
So now you're hustling
for the five and dime
you cure the stranger
and his perverted mind
You are the poet of need
and lust how's the preachin'
You painted destinations
on the inside
and dreamed of revelations
yearning to fly
But you're still walkin'
and still talkin'
You got places to go
you got people to know
you got plans
to get your shit together
Did you take it too far
did you forget who you are
did you stash your soul
into the closet forever forever
Hold on Geany
Watch what ya say
Save your preachin'
for a rainier day
Hold on Geany
I'm talkin' to you
You're so amazing
in whatever you do
You got places to go
you got people to know
you got plans
to get your shit together
Hold on Geany
Watch what ya say
Save your preachin'
for a rainier day
Hold on Geany
I'm talkin' to you
You're so amazing
in whatever you do
You got places to go
you got people to know
you got plans
to get your shit together
Did you take it too far
did you forget who you are
did you stash your soul
into the closet
did you take it too far
Still you know who you are
Grab your soul and hold on to
forever
together

Stay

So suddenly it rolls by again
Soft as a breeze and light as the wind
don't say good-bye and don't dry these tears
if I could fly we'd fly away from here
So don't let go
just come along now
Just say so
It won't be long now
It's all right this ain't no lie
It's right on time
Petals of rose I touch your hair
Heaven knows I love you here
Beautiful smile covets the time
I feel so fine I feel so fine
On my way
Come along and
Stay
When I was young just a little girl
I'd sing to the sun and dream with the world
I got a suitcase full of memory
If I could show you
maybe you'd stay with me
So don't let go
just come along now
Just say
so It won't be long now
It's all right
this ain't no lie
it's right on time
Petals of rose I touch your hair
Heaven knows I love you here
Beautiful smile covets the time
I feel so fine I feel so fine
On my way
Come along and
Stay
Petals of rose I touch your hair
Heaven knows I love you here
Petals of rose I touch your hair
On my way
Come along and
Stay
On my way
Come along and
Stay

G.O.P.

Silver blue hair and a cane in her hand
living to die in the promised land
handing out flyers for the coming of Christ
she says raise from the fire for eternal life
or they'll
take your mind and they'll strip your faith
and they'll starve you with nothin' that you already ate
and they'll compliment just to break you down
Spin you in circles runnin' round & round
Good Ole People live
Good Ole People
coke bottle glasses and a smile on his face
He stands on the comer screamin' don't mix the race
commanding all the children to confess all their sins
then he beats his wife with a bottle of Gin
and they'll
whip your mind just to strip your faith
counterfeit people comin' to dominate
and they'll get you high just to greet you down
Spin you in circles movin' round and round
Good Ole People live
Good Ole People give
But Good Ole People can't drive
and maybe that's why Good Ole People die
mabybe that's why maybe that's why maybe that's why
Good Ole People Good Ole People
Good Ole People live
Good Ole People give
Good Ole People can't drive
maybe that's why Good Ole People die

Skin

She combs her hair and cleans her face
Closes the door and kneels to pray
It don't matter that she's alone
beast or dragon she's going home
If I lay me down
bow my head unto the ground
Would you heal my skin
and these blisters within my skin
She found today
So hard to say
I sweat the sheets
too tired to play
and it don't matter
cause I'm still alive
Beast or Dragon
won't make me hide
If I lay me down
bow my head unto the ground
Would you heal my skin
and these blisters within my skin
another way
I just cant find the words to say
Cold where I lay
it's cold where I lay
bones cracked to clay
a killer's in the way
hot is my shame
Fire pulls my veins
For never is my name
Forever in my shame
holy come heal me
solely, delivery delivery
If I lay me down
bow my head unto the ground
Would you heal my skin
and these blisters within
If I lay me down
bow my head unto the ground
Would you heal my skin
and these blisters within
Blisters within my skin

Girls Say

People got no clothes on
Naked without the blinds drawn
Welcome to my kingdom
We're living our own freedom
and the girls say
Small boy sewn in stitches
He knows wicked witches
Mama's love is silent
Her sweetness becomes violence
and the girls say
and the girls say
and the girls say
It's got me losing my way
Is God really gone?
Losing my way
everybody runs
Losing my way
everybody hung their head down to sigh
Losing my way
everybody runs
Losing my way
everybody hung their head out to dry
Pictured on the ceiling
Regretting what you're feeling
Welcome to my kingdom
We're living our own freedom and the girls say
and the girls say
the girls say
and the girls say
It's got me
Losing my way
everybody runs
Losing my way
everybody hung their head down to sigh
Losing my way
everybody runs
Losing my way
everybody hung their head out to dry
Lord if I know why, why

Sky is Falling

There is a light
That shimmers like a diamond
in the night
a fire that is powerful and strong
and I call it home
Here in the dark
where I dream myself to sleep
I feel my heart
as timeless
as the carving on the stone
and yes it's home
Miracles happening every day
Millions of people
are dying to get away
'Cause the sky is falling
the angels are callin'
but I have no fear
Yes the sky is falling
the angels are callin' me
Yes I can hear
Cause the sky is falling
Opening up
I stretch my arms so wide
I feel my love
Miracles happening every day
Millions of people
are dying to get away
'Cause the sky is falling
the angels are callin'
but I have no fear
Yes the sky is falling
the angels are callin' me
Yes I can hear
Cause the sky is falling
the sky is falling
Miracles happening every day
Millions of people
are dying to get away
'Cause the sky is falling
the angels are callin'
but I have no fear
Miracles happening every day
Millions of people
are dying to get away
'Cause the sky is falling
the angels are callin'
but I have no fear
It's on the good side
on the good side

Mama

Mother may I, and I would say
Yes sweet baby take it away
and I won't be long
Just remember that
Powerful is the woman in you
stay true
and she'd come to me
when fire and water was gone
to caress the empty with a song
Saying why cry for anger
that bullets the sky
just remember
I'll remember and mama
I'll get by
I know my face
seems crazed and wild
but I got her eyes
a mama's child am I
She's blessed with grace
and is smooth as a line
and when I shade
she helps me shine
and she comes to me
when there's nothing
I believe and holds me so high
yes I am free
saying why hold the anger
it won't let you fly
just remember
I'll remember
cause mama mama I'll get by
Confused by my own illusions
she said that it's only my pride
and even the simplest solutions
still won't heal my mind
So I'll remember
I'll remember
and I'll get by, by

Favorite Things

Laughin' till it pisses everybody off
Pullin' up my dress at a dinner meeting
Kissin' till my lips are ready to fall off
Screamin' all night then just say I'm singin'
Yeah these are some of my favorite things
Gold butterflies and gum on a string
these are some of my favorite things
but doin' nothin' is my favorite one
Cashin' in on the glory of my biggest mistakes
fading in the grass basking in the sunlight
Go and say to mama I'll just drive 98
Hold her in my arms tell her I'll be alright
Breath in faith and hope and a big fat cigarette
Drowning in the wine having no regrets
these are some of my favorite things
Don't ask me why
Gold butterflies & gum on a string
Get me high
these are some of my favorite things
But doin' nothin' is my favorite one
and It's not the life I thought it would be
But I'll be alright
I know I will be
So long to circumstance
Cashin' in on the glory
of my biggest mistakes
I'm fadin' now at last
baskin' in sweet sunlight
Yeah these are some of my favorite things
Don't ask me why
Gold butterflies and gum on a string
Get me high
these are some of my favorite things
But lsoing nothin son, is my favorite one
But maybe loving you is my favorite one
my very favorite one, my very favorite one

Hidden Track

Violins hear them play
on the fence where I lay
its where I lay
tumble down to the ground
watch a crash, not a sound
there's no sound
and he said
that it don't matter to me
and I say that all this love is for free
and he said it don't matter to me
it don't matter to me
take me down
from consciousness
hold me now decadence
lay me in your house of sin
and take me down
theres no sound
theres no sound
hold me now
I am breaking down
consciousness
house of sin
somebody swim
tumble down
unto my knee
watch it burn
own your scream
somebody sing
and he said nothing makes sense
but all this was afraid
still you mean nothing to me and I would never agree
so take me now from consciousness
hold me now decadence
lay me in your house of sin
and take me down
take me now
there's no sound
there's no sound
just look over your consciousness is fucking weak
just look over at your violin screaming at your feet
your soiling everytime you speak
